Blythe customization has reached a new level to me upon seeing this sterling silver Blythe ring. I think I just drooled a little. [Thanks, Moxie!]

    Am I missing something here? because that ring looks an awful lot like plastic to me. Not like silver at all.

    I’m sure it was made by making a wax cast of a plastic Blythe ring, then cast in silver, so it retains all the shape (including those little surface divots), as the plastic one. It’s solid silver, and if you need proof, check out the seller’s other items, which include plenty of other cast silver pieces.
